It came as quick as it started, like a shock to a system, spreading so quickly and silenced just as fast.
It twists and corrupts until it is a distorted mirror, until one dares to face it all.

It has been exactly one year since she has distanced herself from everything, trying to process what has been torn from her.
However, all it takes is a little push, a spark, to get her back on her feet and face the world that has wronged her.


Viruslocke Rules
1. One pokemon per area (deupse clause with a 3 attempt mark and a shiny clause permitted)
2. If a Pokemon faints, then it's dead
3. Nickname all pokemon
4. PC is not allowed, which limits it to only your active party as available pokemon. Any pokemon in the PC is considered dead.
5. If you willingly place a team member in your PC, you cannot use it anymore, it is also dead. The only exception is if you have to get a gift pokemon to progress the story, you may swap out a pokemon out in order to do this, but if you choose to use the gift pokemon then it is dead. Pokemon that have pokerus or shiny CAN be put in the PC without dying though.
6. Egg pokemon are banned, due to the fact its mainly a dead weight until you get it high enough level.
7. TMs and EXP shares are banned from this challenge, as they are both computers. HMs are allowed since you need them to progress through the story.
8. Steel and Electric type pokemon are banned, adding one to your party will effectively kill your entire team, meaning you'd be played a monotype challenge.
9. As per monotype rules, if you add a mix of electric or steel, the same with will occur as it does in Rule 9, unless it is a electric/steel typing. (As per monotype, you need to have one of the typings only and it can be primary or secondary)
10. Legendary pokemon are banned
11. Traded/gift pokemon are not allowed
12. No items are allowed to be used in battle.

ROM Settings

- Randomized Starters (3 stage only)
- Randomize Trainers and Wild Pokemon (But not overworld)
- Set pokemon to that of equal power (to ensure I dont get something silly like go against a Magikarp in the E4)

Doesn't actually like birds all that much.
Oh dang I haven't commented in here yet, that means I've got a chance to express how much I like this comic! The premise is super fascinating, that wall at jubilife in the most recent page just emphasizing how different and exciting the chamges you've made are. Even your ruleset is dripping with flavor. Also, as a footnote, I love your fluffy zubat design and dearly hope that they make it to crobat so we can have a flying fluffy orb.

I'm so glad you like the comic so far!~ I'm happy the premise is shining through a lil more now, especially with those changes. I'm excited to show more of that stuff. Oh ye I have plans for that ruleset and why the game was set up the way it was.... but that will come in time~
I'm glad you love the fluffy zubat and hopefully she will become a glorious fluffy crobat.

@Rubombee
I am really glad you are liking this comic! And dont worry about long comments, I adore them! ;v;

Im glad you loved the jokes and expressions before things just started to happen. Dream zones are fun :)
haha I love drawing Celeste (the espeon) and as well as the silly doodles throughout this comic!
(also RIP table yes)

Haha Yeah I loved making that fake out!~ And finally using that glitch stuff.

Yep that's Lucas! And I'm glad you like Nolan he's grown on me so much.

Gosh yeah, we finally have some lore! And some plot! Took the comic long enough but I hope it was worth it!
Yeah I try to make background people less noticeable cause they can seem very... standoffish.
Is MC okay? Who knows.
And ye Finally a NAME! (I can finally say her name normally now)

I'm glad you liked those five panels, its fun to draw those lil moments.
Oh gosh the Cherubi, he was an interesting one to see.

F CHerubi, agreed.
Lol Tala's reflexes need to relax a bit don't they? XD
Also with Jubilife all I can say is: oh boi

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to make this huge comment, I deeply appreciate it and love hearing what people think about my comic! I hope you have a good day!

This Pokemon is infamously irritable, but it comes down from its rage quickly. It is quite loyal to kind, patient Trainers.
Wait, what does that erased section say?
WHAT DOES IT SAY???

I love the mood in those nighttime pages, you are doing a real good job of lighting to make the palettes give a mood as well as a sense of time, good stuff. And I gotta say the excitement in your author comment on deviantart is infectious, I'm excited that you're excited to get to the parts that are exciting to you, I'm sure that when we get to those happenings and big scenes that it'll be magnificent.

Rip to the poor magma slug though, they're good lads even if they are atrocious to actually use (bad stats, late evolution, I keep running into them in randomizers and they just never pan out no matter how hard I try)

@Kadew Gosh im sorry about the long wait!!

Im so glad you liked the palettes and the lighting! Really makes that extra time worth it! Haha thanks, we are getting to the good stuff and I'm so excited! But thanks, hopefully they are up to par.

And yes Slugma is great too bad I had too many fires aka 1 fire type, with my ruleset I couldnt risk it. : (
